    You could try using the Windows Resource Kit utility
    cusrmgr.exe (Console user manager)
    The command would be; cusrmgr -u administrator -m
    \\machinename -P password
    Nice and easy to script with too.

    Subject: Changing Local Admin Password

    I am currently looking for a way to remotely change
    the local
    administrator password on our XP/2k/NT workstations,
    without
    having to visit each computer or using the Local Users
    and
    Groups mmc snap-in.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or tools they use?
    Would
    writing a script be the best solution?

    Thanks,
    -Jimmy
